Rangers Prospect Flips Over a Wall, Makes the Catch, AND LANDS ON HIS FEET

Baseball Is Fun

This might just be the catch of the year.

In the fourth inning of Down East’s 11-4 win over Frederick, Rangers prospect Eric Jenkins went barreling towards the left-field foul line and made an absolutely unbelievable catch over the wall.

Watch as he flips, grabs the ball, and somehow still manages to land on his feet, before firing the ball back in:

Jaw.Drop.

Even Jenkins was surprised: “I looked up at the fence when I was running, and I saw I had enough room to catch the ball,” Jenkins said. “As soon as I did that, my hip hit the fence. As soon as I did that, my instincts told me to grab the bottom of the fence, so I didn’t break my neck. I just landed on two feet.

“I’ve never did anything like that before. I happened so fast, so quick. I didn’t have time to think.”

Let’s see that again:
